Join us at the Royal Geographical Society in London on Wednesday, November 14 for an exclusive evening with historian and BAFTA-winning broadcaster Dan Snow talking about his new book On This Day in History.

As one of Britain’s most popular historians, Dan Snow lives and breathes history and believes passionately that we overlook it at our peril. In On This Day in History, Dan brings to life a key event that happened on each day of the year. From the most important British battle you’ve never heard of (May 20, 685) to the first meeting of John Lennon and Paul McCartney (July 6, 1957) and from the Great Beer Flood of 1815 to the day Jeanne de Clisson became a pirate and singlehandedly declared war on the King of France (August 2, 1343). History is full of unlikely heroes and fascinating turning points and Dan Snow is the perfect guide.

Taking you on a whistle-stop tour through the most interesting and important moments of the last 3000 years, On This Day in History is full of surprises, insights - and great stories. From the very unusual reason behind Mr Kellogg’s invention of cornflakes to the last failed foreign invasion of Britain in 1798 there is no such thing as a day where nothing happened. And day by day, these stories build into a vivid and very human history of the world.  

Dan’s hugely popular History Hit podcast is downloaded a million times a month and he has recently launched a history TV channel - hitstoryhit.tv. He has presented  TV shows such as Armada, Grand Canyon and Vikings along with a regular slot on the One Show on BBC1. He has written several books including Battlefield Britain and The Battle of Waterloo.
